All spread spectrum off
Addtl turbo voltage: 0.004v (lowest as possible)
other: default / auto
4.3ghz @ 1.26v, idles at 1.2ghz @ 1.0v
Haven't reapplied thermal paste yet too busy for the meantime but got a chance to play around with the settings. Temps is still high but quite low compared to my previous result.
I thought at first tries in Windows8 that my system is unstable, weeks later I found out that CPU-Z and HWMonitor are the ones causing it. Quite happy with CoreTemp at the moment but looks like the vcore offset result is not reflecting to the VID which still stuck at 1.3210v.Edited by lagur - 12/25/12 at 8:01am
